Small spare tires have become standard emergency equipment on many newer vehicle brands, but these tires differ greatly from full-size spares. We here at Cawood Honda want every driver to be fully informed about spare tire usage as well as other important aspects of vehicle ownership.

Once you’ve changed out a damaged tire with a small emergency spare, it can be tempting to keep going until the spare itself wears out, but that is not recommended. Emergency spares, as their name would suggest, are designed for use in short-term emergency situations only. They should be replaced with regular, full-size tires as soon as possible to prevent additional problems.

Don’t hesitate to contact us today for more information on proper usage of your vehicle’s spare. We’ll gladly answer your questions and book an inspection or service visit at your earliest convenience.
